welcome for this exceptional session of the Seminar Something you should know Jo-ey Tang.
Jo-ey Tang can be a curator, an artist, and a writer.
He works with and alongside artists and their output, and calibrates the temporality of their engagement over time. He will reflect on his recent endeavors: the notion of slowness, its labor and contingencies, and proximities and distances.
A project since 2015, with Nancy Brooks Brody, Joy Episalla, Zoe Leonard, and Carrie Yamaoka, original core members of New York-based queer art collective fierce pussy, explores the resonances between the artists’ individual practices. Over a year, five chapters of''arms ache avid aeon: Nancy Brooks Brody / Joy Episalla / Zoe Leonard / Carrie Yamaoka : fierce pussy amplified' were sited at Beeler Gallery at Columbus College of Art & Design (2018-2019) where Tang served as Director of Exhibitions ; and Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia (2019); Chapter six will take the form of a book.
'Follow the Mud' (2019-2020) was structured as a process of accumulation in nine "instances" to uncover and activate suppressed and hidden histories: with Michel Auder, Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann, Heide Hinrichs, Laura Larson, Michael Stickrod, Julia Trotta, Vier5, and C. Spencer Yeh.
Tang was also curator at Palais de Tokyo and arts editor at n+1, a literary Journal/magazine based in Brooklyn.
